It’s that time of the year again – Halloween, where Pumpkin Spice Lattes are plentiful and fall foliage is abundant. Every year at this time children dress to replicate their favorite icons, while college-age women have the perfect excuse to wear as little as possible. Once past their early 20s, it may be time for ladies to leave a bit more to the imagination, celebrating the season by choosing a humorous yet age-appropriate costume.
You can’t go wrong impersonating the ultimate uptown girl. A pairing of the signature Holly Golightly black dress, evening gloves, pearl necklace, diamond tiara, and extra-long cigarette holder creates an always classic ensemble. Festive, classy, and fun – this look can attend an ultra-chic costume gala or casual house party. You will not look back in regret as you review Halloween as an Audrey.
Be that unforgettable California Girl. Dressing as Katy Perry is a spunky and current pop-culture costume. Rather than donning a pre-packaged Katy costume, opt for a more innovative approach by selecting a colorful wig, fitted dress, and platform heels. Finish the look by accessorizing with an oversized lollipop.
Haven’t you always wondered what it would be like to be Kanye’s girl? Okay, probably not, but dressing as Kim K can be simple, classy fun. The Kim “kostume” is entirely focused on the hair and derriere. Style your hair, or wig, in a center part, throw on body-con dress (possibly adding a pillow or cushion for increased buttock ballast), and a pair of heels. Costume bonus? Convincing your best friends to dress as Kourtney and Khloe, or your frenemy as Beyonce.
Dressing as an oversized loofah will automatically make you a clean hit (pun intended) at any Halloween party. This DIY costume is fairly low-cost and allows one to display that creative side. Ultimate “date costume” idea? Dress your partner as soap with an all-white ensemble.
